MACO® BRAND INFRARED FILMS

Aura Infrared Film
MACO Aura IR 820c is the companion product to MACOPHOT Precision IR 820c. (It has infrared spectral sensitivity up to 820nm.) The Aura characteristic "IR blossoming" in the highlights is the most sought after look from infrared films.

When used with deep or opaque red filters, foliage and clouds are rendered pure-white, while water and blue sky are coal-black. Warm skin tones and lips will appear white.

Precision Infrared Film
MACO Precision IR820c is the companion product to MACOPHOT Aura IR 820c. Both are 820 nanometer infrared films, the difference being that the Precision has an antihalation backing which produces extremely sharp images. No blossoming or booming in the highlights. This makes Precision an infrared film unlike any other. Without filtration it behaves like a normal panchromatic black and white film. But when used with filters that are deep or opaque red, it is effective in creating scenes where foliage and clouds are pure-white, while water and blue sky is coal-black. Warm skin tones and lips will appear white.
IMAGE MECHANICS SCANNER TRAY
Significantly Improve Scan Sharpness! The Image Mechanics Fluid Mount Scanner Tray enables users of the Nikon Cool Scan 8000 and 9000 to dramatically improve the quality of your scans by increasing edge to center sharpness, removing scratches and dust, and easing grain. The tray is simple and easy to use with no cleanup worries. Save countless hours in spotting your scans without having to use DIGITAL ICE, which can reduce the sharpness of the scan.

Finally, you can now get your medium priced scanner to perform like the expensive high-end CCD scanners.
